Day 7 -9(40 days closer to Christ)

Day 7 and 8
Jacob 1-7
Scriptures to ponder:Jacob 2:18-19,Jacob 6:11-12
Seek not riches on earth but the kingdom of God.Now is the perfect time with the holidays to make new financial goals.Also starting November 30th we will be studying about Christ's birth and having a more Christ centered Christmas.

Jacob 4:10
Wherefore, brethren, seek not to counsel the Lord, but to take counsel from his hand. For behold, ye yourselves know that he counseleth in wisdom, and in justice, and in great mercy, over all his works.

It seems that some [Latter-day Saints] among us have this same problem; they want bountiful harvests—both spiritual and temporal—without developing the root system that will yield them"(in Conference Report, Oct. 1978, 113; or Ensign, Nov. 1978, 74–75).

Jacob points out three sources of truth.These are 1)scriptures2. prophets and 3.Holy Ghost.These 3 sources testify of Christ. They will help us build on a sure foundation,who is Christ, the Son of God and keep us deeply rooted in the gospel.

How am I helping to further God's work?Treat everyone as a child of God.

I need to be acting on what was taught in General Conference.To add to my goal of saying sincere prayers I want to add to be guided on which talks I need to focus on for me
and my family.

Day 9
Enos ,Jarom and Omni
Scriptures to ponder:Enos 1:27
